College football and golf always seem to go together, and with the gridiron season well underway, Imperial headwear is commemorating the current campaign with a new line of unique designs called the Tailgate Collection. In a departure from the traditional school logo or mascot on this collection of preppy cotton baseball, Oxford bucket hats and Tour visors, the Tailgate collection features the colors of some of the most well-known colleges in America with an outline of the school’s respective state and one of its defining characteristics.
The states included in the collection are: Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
“Our Tailgate Collection is a state pride themed line of headwear,” noted David Shaffer, director of marketing at Imperial Headwear. “Anybody who wants to show their loyalty on game day, at a party, or any other day of the week will enjoy this new collection of preppy caps. It’s a perfect way to show your team spirit this season.”
A unique feature of these hats is that while the outline of the state remains constant in the collections for each of the 14 states available, the school colors of the hat and logo are available for many of the most popular major colleges in those states so that fans can where their school colors and promote their home state at the same time. The hats have a classic look and fit that most college football fans will enjoy. They are available on-line or at many fine golf shops that carry Imperial headwear.

Sight Ball has six sights, or targets--four of which are used to help the golfer to correctly align themselves with the ball. One points in the desired direction of the ball, one points upward toward the golfer’s face as they look down, another at the feet to gauge proper stance, and the last lines up with the club at the back of the ball.
The intention is for a player using the ball during practice to begin by pointing a sight toward the target and one face up toward the golfer. The golfer also looks at a sight pointing at his or her feet to get the correct stance and then
